“A Microcosm of the Province”
Review of Sidlakang Negros

Sidlakang Negros
Reviewed 30 June 2015

This is a showroom of all significant products proudly made in Negros Oriental, Of course, they also sell these items so it is virtually a one-stop shop for souvenirs and native delicacies. Around Christmas time, the staff told us that various exhibits and festivities are also held there so be sure to drop by when you're in Dumaguete City in November-December. I wonder though why they don't make it a year-round affair. After all, tourists go there all months of the year. Since it's also a commercial venture, it should be self-sustaining too.

The hot springs' pools are a favorite with the locals. There are three pools to choose from plus a cold water pool. Easy to get there on a jipney, but going back to Dumaguete you need to ride on the back of a motorcycle. Just by luck there was mountain bike racing that day.

This is a place for foreign tourists. Local tourists like me would find the local products sold here to be on the expensive side especially if you know where to source them in Dumaguete.

But not all that impressive.
Hard to place my finger on it, but if you want something authentic special from the region, seek out the great stone, coral and seashell souvenirs in Bacong at the local stoneworking art shop. They are colorful, varied in size and style, and sure to please every decorative taste in your home wherever you live on the globe. Much nicer that yet another 'warrior spear' leaning against your living-room wall or a drawn-looking face on the end of a long spoon collecting dust in your home.
